Disease-Carriers with Wings

Mosquitoes can spread encephalitis, Zika, West Nile virus, heartworm and more. But they won’t survive at your Harrisburg property if you call the experts at Tactical Pest and Termite Solutions!

Most active during twilight hours, these biting warriors hover around ponds, bird baths, small ditches, tree holes – any cavity that contains stagnant water. Once they deposit their eggs, some can survive over the winter and will hatch when flooded by rainfall. Since mosquito larvae feed on bacteria, algae and other microorganisms in water, they can be super spreaders when it comes to diseases.

Mosquitoes are drawn to host animals by moisture, lactic acid, carbon dioxide, body heat and movement. Their saliva is transferred to the host during a bite. By transmitting diseases so easily, it has been estimated that they cause more human deaths than any other animal taxon; more than 700,000 per year. They are also the culprits that can cause heartworm disease in your family dogs.

If you’re tired of fighting these winged vectors of diseases, call today and let us end the mosquito infestation at your Harrisburg property.
